Possibility Lab Awarded California Collaborative for Pandemic Recovery and Readiness Research Grant

The Possibility Lab was recently awarded a grant from the California Collaborative for Pandemic Recovery and Readiness Research (CPR3). Our work examines California Labor and Workforce Development Agency’s (LWDA) COVID-19 Workplace Outreach Project (CWOP), designed to support partnerships between government and a statewide network of community-based organizations to develop and disseminate targeted public health information and resources. Leveraging behavioral science insights and rigorous research methods, we aim to help improve health and safety outcomes among agricultural workers and other occupations most vulnerable to COVID-19 and other public health threats. This research is one of more than 30 projects that has been awarded over $6 million in funding from the CPR3 program, which is a collaboration between UC San Francisco (UCSF), the California Health and Human Services Agency (CalHHS), and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). By funding pandemic recovery and readiness research, CPR3 uses real-world evidence from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic to help all Californians gain a renewed and improved sense of health and well-being by generating evidence to inform public policy.
